Most athletic player in the league- offense
We did defense already, so let's tackle offense now.
Qb- umm give me vick. I'm sure I don't need to explain this pick. But if someone has a strong feeling about say, cam newton, that discussion might have legs.
Wr- MEGATRON! hands down.. I don't think there's a credible argument against him. Since the league usually lists 2 starters, we probably should too. So many choices.. does he have game speed, can he win jump balls, can he impose his will and box others out to make a catch, can he get off a jam and can he beat double teams. Could go fitz, a. Johnson, or Steve smith here.
Rb- mjd. His athleticism is what allows a guy that short to be so successful. Crazy powerful lower half, break away speed, ability to change directions fast and slip tackles. I know this pick may be debated heavily. Lots of super athletic guys at this position.
TE- this was perhaps the most difficult pick for me. Picking between gronk, graham, and Vernon Davis. Wow! Perhaps not a wrong answer as all 3 play a different game, and have different strengths. Gronk is the ultimate red zone target. He's a monster. He's perhaps the biggest mis match because of the blend of size and speed he has, although he's quite slower than the other 2. Graham is brees' security blanket and will never be outjumped for a ball. Davis is well documented as having had the best combine showing of any te, perhaps ever. And he's produced on the field, he was the receiving glue of that niners offense. Davis may have the best measurables, and I think once graham is a more accomplished route runner he will be the most athletic, but right now I think its gronk. A man that big shouldn't be able to do the things he does.
Tackle- Joe Thomas. Great kick step. Great leverage and decent strength. Always stays in front of his guy and directs him where he wants him. Quick feet. Jake long would be a good pick too, he's stronger at the point of attack than Thomas is, but I prefer Thomas.
Guard- yeah right! The only guard play I've paid attention to is our guys giving someone stunting an ole' into the backfield, or a holding penalty. I don't watch guards enough to know enough to make a pick. My half ass pick would be yanda. He manhandled our line this year.
Center- maurkice pouncey. Great feet, strong at the point, and pulls better than just about everyone.
Fb- is this still an legit NFL position?
